Play Apple Music on Kodi? Fixed.

"To have some fun when playing my video game, I want to use Apple Music as a Kodi add-on, but didn’t find any way to do that. How can I play Apple Music on Kodi?" --Chris

Kodi, also known as Xbox Media Center (XBMC), is a powerful and free media player that rules many people’s leisure time. Music, Movie, TV show, Radio, Podcast, Audio Book… Kodi provides users with a multitude of functions to enjoy their time and amuse their life.

Kodi things have been highly praised and frequently used in a lot of cases. However, if a user happens to be a music fan and a subscriber of Spotify Music or Apple Music, he or she will find that Kodi doesn’t support playing these streaming music sources directly. Indeed, Spotify Music users can play Spotify songs on Kodi by using its add-on, however, other Apple Music users, seem to have no choice other than quitting their iTunes library, which is not convenient and user-friendly at all. Is there any other possible way to listen to Apple Music on Kodi?
